Description

This image shows a section of the Eastern Veil Nebula (NGC 6979) imaged in narrowband with H-alpha and O-III filters. Color combination was done in HOO mode, with a synthetic luminance created by averaging the H-alpha and O-III stacks.

The seeing was not too good when I shot these frames, so maybe a second attempt is in the works?
